very hard. although, george bush tried it a little before backing away, on political and economic reforms that would allow egypt to grow as a country, have a more liberal political system. in the name of stability, we really sort of turned a blind eye to a lot of repression and economic backwardization. now, you know, one school of thought is it's all coming home to roost. it's kind of too late for us to do anything about it. we just have to watch the chaos unfold and sort itself out, unfortunately. >> michael crowley, "time" magazine. always appreciate your insight. >> thank you. >>> back here, congressional lawmakers are vowing more oversight amid a new report that the nsa routinely broke privacy rules in its controversial surveillance program. according to "the washington post," the nsa exceeded its legal authority thousands of times since 2008 with unauthorized surveillance of americans or foreign targets on u.s. soil. senate judiciary chairman pat leahy says he plans to hold another hearing on the nsa surveillance program. house speaker nancy pelosi called the report, quote,

an impeached president just like the republicans. then george w. bush. they say people weren't nice to george bush so we're going to be extra mean to barack obama. and they're constantly framing their policies. now, in the irs case, there has been a really pernicious use of the irs. would be to go after political enemies. but the only person who's done that, you've seen democratic leaning groups or liberal leaning groups complaining they were audited during the bush administration including the naacp. that is closer to the nixonian model than the irs. >> we saw congressional hearings, now we find out the irs was also looking for successors to acorn. even using those cute little acorns there looking for progressive groups. anyone that looks political. what happened to all of this noise we were hearing on the hill? >> remember it was elijah cummings that pointed out some time ago if it's being nixonian it's issa. issa was limiting the amount of information coming out to paint a specific picture that he wanted painted. remember there was that back and forth between cummings and issa where cummin

. this goes back to the presidency of george bush. we heard a lot of the same -- it's almost the exact same sort of scenario. you had some people on the far left in congress talking about impeaching president bush. and you had the leaders of their parties saying, we're not really interested in that. that's a side show, a side track. but for republicans it seems to be a fever dream they can't shake, that they really want to impeach this president. it seems odd, there's certainly one way to get rid of a president who's unpopular and incompetent. that's through an election. and i think obviously, that ship has sailed. >> and andy, you know, just to touch upon that if you could follow up on that, prior to the recent election, the gop way to go forward was to try to defeat him in this election, in fact some of them said it was their soul priority. we know that didn't happen. what should we be doing to making sure they are making gains in 2014 and 2016. is this the way to win elections? >> no, it's not, mara. i think the impeachment story is overblown. everybody is out of town. there's no real ne

cetera, et cetera, don't forget george bush xli resigned his membership in the nra because they got away from what they were supposed to be doing, the things we just discussed and got into this issue of conspiracy theories, as you said, black helicopters, et cetera, et cetera. that's a bad thing. if you're out there trying to educate the public on how to handle weapons safely, who not to shoot, including, you know, yourself, go get help if you need that sort of thing, that's a good thing. that's not at all what the nra stands for in the public's mind today, and if that's the case, then their image is worse than what we know, and they're hypocrites on top of that. that's the saddest part. >> let's just say that jimmy's dream of a third gun ownership organization were to come there true and there would be an advocate for the sane ordinary man on the street gun owner, what do you think realistically they could lobby for in washington. >> those people are pro-gun registries. my father was a lifetime member of the nra who resigned his membership over their response to the sandy hook shootings
this, 12 years ago, the american president, george bush said, he looked in vladimir putin's soul and deemed him straightforward and honest. >> that's right. >> look at where we are now. obama didn't criticize putin. he criticized him on a comedy show, jay leno. it tells you how far things have come. >> i forgot about the soul comment. perhaps his soul has changed, perry bacon. >>> the headlines for the week, gold did i ta goldie taylor for next week. >> my headline is president obama in for a long, hot summer or should i say summers? i think that what's happening with larry summers as the potential nod for fed chairman is wrong-headed, misguided for any number of reasons. but i think he's close to this president. he's shown quite a bit of loyalty as part of this inner circle and may very well get the nod. that will in fact upset the president's base in ways i don't think we can cal late. >> it sounds like you're a yellen supporter. >> yes, i am. i think this is, as the president said, one of the most important economic decisions he'll make during the duration of his presidency. t
country the case had to be made all the way up to condoleezza rice. and then that had to go up to george bush who had to approve it as the president has to approve the rendition. the only way costelli could get approval is if silvio berlusconi was on board of with it, and the head of the cia was on board with it. the italians had to be the law enforcement group on the ground to arrest. >> they had to be the ones to grab him? >> they had to be the ones to arrest him, and then turn him over to the americans. that's the we it was supposed to function. the italian intelligence decided they were not going to be part of this. and silvio berlusconi said absolutely not. they didn't have the authority to do this for berlusconi. they were not allowed to be involved in renditions. and finally, they also discovered a few weeks later, that the italian law enforcement had omar under surveillance for two years. and they could not disrupt -- >> they picked up because -- >> they were not allowed by law to disrupt that investigation. >> if jeffrey costelli was the architect of this whole plan, how was he
of george w. bush, told "people" magazine hillary clinton should run in 2016. she stopped short of saying she'd vote for her, but said clinton is, quote, unbelievably accomplished. at a dark time in politics when it seems the parties can't even agree on what they disagree about, that goes a long way. we need more barbara bushes in the beltway. it was a pleasant surprise to hear from her. she's not the first one in her family to speak positively about the clintons. george w. bush has come out and said she knows what it means to work under pressure. regardless of how you view the clintons or the bushes, both families know what public service is all about or what public service should be all about. you know, ultimately it should be about getting results. it should be about making people's lives better. unfortunately, we've lost sight of that in politics today. if you give someone a compliment or you serve someone on the opposite side of the political aisle, you're seen as weak. you're seen as someone that, you know, is a traitor, essentially. this comes from personal experience. i spent a lo

one either new orleans or baton rouge. >> that was george w. bush discussing the biggest mistakes of his presidency in his final press conference. president obama did not mention that it took two days -- two days -- for national guard troops to arrive after the hurricane struck or three days for fema to acknowledge that there was a situation at the superdome. instead, our 43rd president wished he had done a different photo-op. that clip is from january 12th, 2009, more than three years after the storm laid waste to new orleans and the gulf coast. here's why we're talking about it right now. a new ppp poll finds that 29% of louisiana republicans believe president obama was responsible for the poor response to hurricane katrina. that is more than the 28% who blame george w. bush, the man actually president at the time and for the three years following it. the results are even more stunning among republicans over the age of 65. 42% of them blame the botched response on barack obama who was at the time a freshman senator in the united states congress. >>> coming up, the white house ex
, president george w. bush had made 50 visits to his texas ranch, totaling all or part of 323 days. knoller said that he always puts the word "vacation" in quotes because as he often says, u.s. presidents don't really get to take a vacation. the job comes with them 24/7. well, i'm hoping president obama plays lots of golf in the next couple of days or shoots hoops or whatever else he needs to do to maintain his mental edge. i felt the same way about president george w. bush, and i never begrudged him his time at the ranch. all told he was there during 490 days during his presidency. the health of the country is largely a function of the physical and mental health of its commander in chief. and if blowing off some steam

the financial crisis happened at the end of the george bush sww. bush president and the economy went down the toilet across country, there were a million manifestations that were material, for individual families, people who lost their jobs, us as a country. in 2008, our economic growth rate was negative 8.3%. that was the negative growth rate that quarter for the whole country. one of the weirdly unsettling manifestations of that very dark time in our recent history was when some towns and some counties and some states decided they had to unpave themselves. do you remember this when we decided that the united states of america could no longer afford paved roads? 38 counties in michigan started grinding their paved roads, their asphalt roads into gravel because they could not afford to keep them paved. in south dakota, 100 miles of afault road ground into gravel. in ohio, they couldn't afford to grind down their roads. ohio counties made an official decision to let their paved streets erode into unpaved streets. this started happening in 2009 when the economy was still just spiraling down
george w. bush did in 1998, shoring up support among hispanics, african-americans, even as he was seeking re-election in texas in '98, trying to get the broader appeal for the party. it worked for him in 2000. >> this debate with rand paul i think is a little sterile, because you have the rand paul camp saying the party needs principles. well, of course it does, because any party without principles is rudderless and passive. and you have chris christie saying you need power and a compelling governing agenda. well, of course you do because that's the only way you effect your principles. so it's not either/or. it's both. i think what christie is after is the george w. bush model, saying this is a model for the presidential race, and what he would hope to do is cement that establishment slot in the primary and hope he's facing a divided field on the right. and if history is any guide, that's a pretty good way to win a republican nomination. >> robert gibbs? >> and the pathway may have gotten a little clearer, because the rnc did a very savvy thing this week, right? first of all, they're work
